The closest airport to the North Cape is less busy since the undersea North Cape Tunnel opened, yet Honningsvåg Airport remains a vital transport link for the local communities on the island of Magerøya and beyond. A short runway and surrounding mountains mean approaching planes must swoop down low in a semicircle before attempting to land. In addition to short hops to small Finnmark communities, the airport offers daily flights to Tromsø, where connections to Oslo are available.
